My name is Lina; I am currently a head teacher in the Pre-K classroom.

My name is Rugiya. I think it’s a big responsibility but also an enormous privilege to work with kids, to be able to give them the attention and the love they need to grow healthy and successful. I enjoy playing and dancing with them, watching them say the first word and walk the very first step.
My name is Camille. I have a lot of experience working with children, in their own special way. I enjoy seeing them grow and develop their own personalities. When you spend your day with children, there is never a dull moment. I’ll trade all those years of sitting behind a desk for sitting on the floor with a group of toddlers reading or singing any day. I love looking at the world through their eyes. Everything is exciting and new to a two-year-old.
